Hi! I've been having severe constipation on and off now.

Hi! I've been having severe constipation on and off now. A few days ago I drank some magnesium citrate, which produced an enormous bowel movement. Here I am three days later constipated once again. I also noticed the presence of mucus in my stool. Is this normal with constipation or could it be a sign of something else?

Hi, so I ve been having trouble making a bowel movement for about a week now. Ive been drinking prune juice and all its doing is goving me gas. My stomach feels bloated and I feel sick. Also before all of this happened I was using the restroom and it felt like I tore my anus.
